Olivia Joy... Three Months

Can you believe that Olivia is already three months old?
And isn't she just BEAUTIFUL!
When her older sister Grace was three months we did pictures in this same dress on this same backdrop and blanket!
We also did pictures in the pink polka dot dress on the pink backdrop and blanket. The pink polka dot dress was Grace's First Eater Dress.
But - we didn't put Grace in a tutu!
Her onsie says princess on it, but in almost every shot I got she is covering the lettering with her hands. But, that's okay.... we all know she's a little princess, anyway!

Brilyn came in for her monthly pictures last Monday and I threw a tutu on her and got this! Isn't that just adorable?

River is Turning ONE!

River is turning ONE, so we did his One Year Old Pictures!
Isn't this precious?
He's a sweet little boy, but it's kind of hard to see him grow up. I don't think his Momma is planning any more children and it will be a little sad seeing her without a baby in her arms. She's such a good Mommy! And she has such beautiful children. And they are all so well behaved.
But in today's world it is hard to afford a house full of kids. Things ARE getting expensive!
But, kids are worth it! Nothing brings a smile to your face faster than seeing joy in the face of an infant or toddler. There is just something contagious about their laughter.

Bravyn & River

Here is Bravyn with his little brother River!
Aren't they precious?
This was taken right before River fell out of the swing.
And here we have them both on the old washtub.
I love the way Bravyn's big smile steals the show here! He is all smiles.... all the time.

Bravyn is turning two!
That hardly seems possible. He's growing up way too fast!
But, isn't he just the cutest thing?
He's easy to work with, too!
His Momma & Daddy have four children and they are all well behaved! They are all such a joy to work with. And - they are all super cute!
Bravyn's little brother came in for pictures, too! But we'll get to those another day.
Right now, I'm seeing so many cute little Bravyn faces that I'm having a hard time choosing just a few.
So.... you're getting to see several!
And tomorrow, you'll probably get to see more because there are lots of cute ones of Bravyn & River that I just have to share!

Matt & Katrina's Wedding

Matt & Katrina wanted a simple, outdoor wedding at the lake!
And Papa Bill was there to help make their dream come true!
Don't they make a cute couple? I wanted to get a shot of her boquet, using one of her boots as a vase, but I never got the opportunity. It might have made a really cute picture.
Matt looks pretty stoked.
And they both look very happy!
Congratulations to Matt & Katrina!

Jennifer's Maternity Session

Jennifer came in last Friday evening for maternity pictures. She had requested the white backdrop and the white scarf rather thhan the black one I normally use. I like black because it give me such a dramatic effect... but I'm finding I like the dreamy look of the white, too!Isn't she beautiful?
I find it hard to believe that she already has four kids!
She could easily pass for a first time Mom!
She doesn't know yet whether this baby is a boy or a girl.
But, she's doing his or her nursery in rubber duckies, so we did a few pictures with this little rubber duckie to match.

Brycen came into the studio this week and he is such a little sweetheart! He is almost three weeks old - and he can roll right out of that trencher bowl!

Can you believe it? He's rolling over!
I think he might just be a little athlete!

And look at those gorgeous eyes!

He is such a beautiful baby! He even looks great in camo!

Shane & Rebecca

Shane and Rebecca are newly engaged!
They've set the date for 11/11/11!
(Don't those numbers look like a cute little couples standing side by side?)

It's probably a good day to get married. After all, who could forget their anniversary with a date like that?

Anyway, they seem very happy together!

And they look great together, too!

Love Is In The Air....

Friday Night I did family portraits for Leisha & Mike! We met at Medicine Park and they brought along a preacher and got married right there on the trail!

It was a small, simple wedding! But - what more do you really need?

After the short ceremony, we did family shots and a few couple shots, plus shots with their kids!

I think this shot is my favorite. It catches the happy couple in a tender moment. Leisha looks relaxed and happy and she is extremely radiant in black & white.

I also like this one! While I like natural candids, faces are nice, too. And here both Leisha and Mike are looking at the camera.

And - it's a wedding, so we had to have a little romance.

As well as a few pictures of the lovely bride by herself.

I'll try to get more pictures up of the family in a day or two!
